Bringing the Beefcake

I know it's fashionable to dismiss this line, because it's become so proverbially identified with T&A, but why? Surely it can be treated in a mature, adult manner, as befits its angsty and historically-informed subject matter - after all, it's not like it's been abandoned, what with the new anime version coming out--




Inspiration drawn from here, here, here, and here.

And also here, because I was in a hurry, and also to cover my backside, so to speak, and besides, that's also part of what we're mocking, with Greg Land - although I daresay I chose a better original to trace - and the deliberate errors even in tracing of photos to add still more sexiness [sic], too.

--Surely Top Cow won't have any problem bringing this matching title out, right? Getting Frank Cho to draw it, and Mark Silvestri, and Sideshow to make a collectible model of it, and licensing an R-rated video version, and no store owners will feel embarrassed putting it on the shelves, nor fanboy feel embarrased bringing issues to the register to purchase them, because it is absolutely 100% appropriate...as anything they've done so far, that is.

Come on, folks, surely we can come up with a character bio and angst-filled, dramatic story for the first comic ever to tell the tale of the man chosen by fate to wear the legendary WitchCup, eh?

--Okay, because I'm not totally lost to all decency and sensibilities and so forth, here's some advertising art from a more wholesome era to help you recover....
